Joan was so awesome in not just helping us finding the perfect home but in helping us learn the Albuquerque area! Joan and Jill are both so knowledgeable about every aspect of buying a home! We loved working with them and felt so blessed to have been placed with Joan from our relocation company!
Joan Wagner was so helpful, friendly and invaluable in our hunt for finding our home in Corrales, NM! She knew so much more than great houses, but areas and connections as well! Joan (and her partner, Jill) get an 11! Hands down, the best home buying experience ever!
Communicated in timely manner. Knowledge of local market. Followed up on commitments. Provided info on properties within your budget:
I want to thank you for taking the time out of your busy day to show me around Albuquerque. After visiting Bosque I was enthusiastic about the school, but still didn't have a feel for the city. Our couple of hours together turned that around for me completely--you listened to what my wife and I look for in a city and showed me those areas that were perfectly suited to our needs and wants. The roadrunners (thanks for sending the video!) and lunch at Duran's Pharmacy were the icing on the cake! I can easily imagine making a home in Albuquerque.
Really wanted to help us sell our home. Joan and staff did a great job!
Joan provided info & resources to prepare my home for listing, staging and photography. Clone Joan. Our home sold prior to MLS listing due to her networking. Thank you!
Joan and Jill are an incredibly dynamic team. Joan’s absolute professionalism and expertise are invaluable. She went above and beyond to help us find our home. Her ability to network and connect with people is nothing short of outstanding. We could not be happier. Huge thanks to the best realtor we have known
Joan and Jill are outstanding experts of real estate. You won't find more knowledgeable, responsive, skillful, customer service oriented people period. They will listen and efficiently assess your needs and find you the absolute best home. If you want a home searching experience from house hunting to the final close that will exceed your expectations, you won't find anyone better. They are also the nicest people to walk through the whole experience with. The absolute best!
Jill and Joan,
Just a quick THANK YOU for a job well done. You both were the perfect RE team for assisting us in selling our wonderful house in the North Valley. We selected the two of you after interviewing several top producers from a list we received from a Realtor in Scottsdale and are happy we did. Your results were amazing!!! Your advice, understanding, and professionalism was extremely helpful and appreciated.
We both thank you and will recommend you to our friends and family as the "only real estate brokers in New Mexico to call."

I also wanted to let you know about our experience w/ Joan. Even though she isn't local to Santa Fe, we have been impressed with her overall knowledge of the market and she has been extremely responsive and helpful as we have relied on her to navigate through the (sometimes murky) home buying process. I think she is really good and that deciding to work w/ USAA Real Estate Network was a smart move on my part. However, my wife absolutely loves Joan, and thinks she is head and shoulder above other realtors with whom we have worked. She likes how Joan is honest and up-front and seems to care more about helping us make the right home buying decision.
Pat & Burke Lokey
Yesterday we were discussing what happened to us last year. As you know we are septuagenarians and made exceptional changes to our life last year. Of course we discussed what was good and what was not. We want you to know that you ended up on the good side of our life. As a matter of fact you win it all!
You made it possible for us to completely change our life from a comfortable nice neighborhood which we loved to a very different "in the country home ". As it turns out we love it here. We are nearer to our Grandchildren and enjoy the less busy atmosphere of the country.
We want to commend you on your extraordinary efforts to make our profound life changes possible. Without your expertise in helping us to sell our beloved home and buying our new country home we don't even want to think about it.
We Love You!
DENNIS and KAAREN CRAIG
Joan, thank you so much for the tasty lunch at ABQ Country Club. What a lovely setting and the food was delicious. But I am more grateful for the assistance and support you gave me through the recent sale of my rental property on Rio Hondo. As you know, I am no novice when it comes to real estate transactions but was not prepared for the situation I encountered when my neighbor took down the wall\fence and retaining wall without my permission. Her actions could have prevented the sale of the house. Fortunately, you had my back. I was able to trust your knowledge and judgement because of our years of working together. You responded quickly to each problem with a solution and we were able to close on time!
I am grateful to have you as my friend.
I am forever grateful that you were the ones I picked to help me sell my home! I immediately felt that Joan’s knowledge of the market in in Sandia Heights, as well as her many years of experience in general, were going to be invaluable in selling my home quickly. Your teamwork was a bonus ensuring that there was always someone there whenever I needed quick answers. And I was extremely grateful that you preferred Stewart Title, as their customer service and communication cannot be beat in Albuquerque. I appreciate your showing my rental property, and I look forward to using your team again in a couple of years when I sell that property... because there is no one else I would trust more.
I wanted to extend our thanks for the GRET job Jill Levin did in selling our house. Our market has an incredible amount of real estate agents who we are sure do a great job as well but every once in a while ..one rises above the other. From the day we met with Jill you knew she was going to do everything she can to sell our property. What we most appreciated about Jill was she looked at all aspects to include ideas such as “you might consider repainting this or that, or putting in new carpet will help it sell quicker, etc”. She did not just accept the property as it was but worked hard providing ideas so we can sell it quicker.
From the listing to the eventual sale she was there every step of the way and responded immediately to our emails or texts. We felt very comfortable and assured she was going to do everything possible to get our home sold…she did in less than 60 days. Do yourself a favor and deal with those that rise to the top in their profession…Call Jill, you will be glad you did.. Mark & Cindy
Joan and Jill are outstanding experts of real estate. You won't find more knowledgeable, responsive, skillful, customer service oriented people period. They will listen and efficiently assess your needs and find you the absolute best home. If you want a home searching experience from house hunting to the final close that will exceed your expectations, you won't find anyone better. They are also the nicest people to walk though the whole experience with. The absolute best!
Jill, you did what you said you would do. Very pleased with service from the J Group. The process was smooth. Nice to work with professionals. Jill really made the process painless.
Jill and Joan were the best – very easy to work with, very professional! Every little detail was no problem at all. Thanks again for all the great service!
We are enjoying our new home!
Joan is an outstanding Realtor. She excels at finding out what her customers want and zeros in on their needs. She has been doing her job long enough that she knows her areas, the homes in them and the builders who built them. She has a wealth of knowledge that any buyer or seller would be a fool to not utilize.
Being a Realtor is not a part time job for Joan and her Associate Jill Levin. If you are looking for a Realtor that throws her heart and soul into her profession with candor and integrity (and you should be), hire Joan immediately!
Jill, I immediately took notice of how much better your listing of my property is!
Your listing is much more professional. It not only provides additional information, but also has a plan of the house which is key for interested clients. I send you my heartfelt congratulations for the listing but also want to thank you because you have been so thoughtful and patient with me. You are a true professional. Additionally, naturally expressive and outgoing, you have a heart, that is to say, a sincere concern for others which is unique.
Jill Levin, Joan's partner, is our realtor. Jill went above and beyond time and time again to ensure that we found our dream home in Corrales. She did not stop at merely helping us find our home, however. She made absolutely certain that the deal went through....from our offer, through all the inspections, to closing, and beyond. Jill's attention to detail and professionalism are exemplary. Every document was sent to us on time and each was accurate. Jill is a master at working through complicated situations in the buying and selling process, and she helped to set our minds at ease when any issues arose. Jill always had our best interest in mind. She never pressured or rushed us into any decisions, but presented us with the necessary information to guide us in making our choices. Jill has an incredible network of professionals that work with her: handymen, general inspectors, roofers, stucco people, mortgage brokers, etc. She has also been great with our 3 kids, 3 dogs.....even our 15 chickens! We highly recommend Jill as both a selling and buying agent!
We hired Jill (associate) and our house sold before it was even put on the market. We had some issues with the house that needed to be resolved and Jill helped coordinate it all. Unfortunately, that deal fell through (do to the buyers circumstances). Jill listed the house 2 days later and had two offers by week's end. How crazy is that? The deal went through without even a hiccup! Thank you Jill!!!!
Note: we were listed with another realtor for about 7 months without a hint of an offer and very few showings. The house was even listed 7% lower than what Jill listed it. Thanks for getting us to the right sales price and being with us each step of the way Jill!!!!
Jill was definitely there to take care of us.
I worked with primarily with Jill Levin, with Joan providing guidance and advice as needed, and had a fantastic home-buying experience. I needed to buy relatively quickly, from out of state, and Jill's great personality, rapid grasp of what I was looking for, and extensive local knowledge made it an unexpectedly fun experience. Once the offer was accepted she continued to work tirelessly to make sure the closing occurred smoothly and on time. Even now I rely on her knowledge and contacts for everything from restaurant recommendations to contractors. Many thanks to Jill, Joan, and Marene!
Everything about Joan Wagner's approach to real estate service is FIRST CLASS. Joan is an extremely effective listener in that she understood my interests and goals and guided my choices accordingly. I readily trusted her observations and appreciated her input. The breath and depth of Joan's knowledge about the market, residential structures, their infrastructure and communities was very thorough. I appreciated her constant availability. Once I decided on a property, Joan expeditiously negotiated my offer and counter-offers to my benefit. I believe her impressively quick actions are the reason I'm now occupying my First Choice property in New Mexico!
Thanks to Joan and Marene who were very responsive to us during the purchase of our beautiful new home. Joan has a wonderful and extensive knowledge of the housing market and the community which we truly appreciated.
Joan is a very professional, knowledgeable real estate agent. She was very familiar with our neighborhood and the type of house we were trying to sell. We were provided with immediate feedback to the open houses and to any of our questions-at just about any time of the day!
Joan Wagner, a consumate professional, impressed us immediately with her knowledge and professionalism. Her straightforward, honest and clear communication of her market familiarity and understanding; and her ability to tailor a sales strategy based on a realistic evaluation of our home in the market, were especially impressive. More significantly, she and her partner, Jill Levin, delivered "success" with an extraodinary committment and efficiency. Joan and Jill execute a seamless sales approach that assures responsiveness on behalf of their seller to any buyer inquiry, as well as genuine care & complete support to their listing customer. Our interests were superbly protected throughout the transaction process. Joan and Jill guided us through the entire process with a fully engaged committment to a successful close. They are the BEST !!!
I worked with Jill Levin (and Joan) to sell my house (it sold in 1 day) and to buy another house and I recommend Jill highly. She went above and beyond to help me with everything from finding reliable repair people to getting better insurance rates on my new house. Jill was always on time, courteous and is very knowledgeable when it comes to the Albuquerque housing market. I cannot say enough about Jill; I will be using her again if I am in need of a realtor. I am very pleased with her work.
Ms Wagner went above and beyond to show Albuquerque, help to mediate difficult and complelx negotiations, and identified high quality inspectors etc in order to identify and eventually settle on an appropriate home. She displayed very detailed local knowledge, good negotiation skills and dogged determination through a lengthy process and ended successfully. She has followed up after closing with appropriate referrals.
I worked with Jill Levin, an associate of Joan Wagner,and could not have been more pleased. I was in Real Estate as a salesperson and broker but never had an employee as proficient as Jill. She knew what se was doing, kept me informed of every step and occurance. If I could have had a couple of agents like her I would still be in business. I will gladly recommend Joan and Jill to anyone who desires an excellent agent
Jill and Joan and the team were fantastic. Their communication was stellar- always following up. I have worked with Realtors in the past and typically when the contract was signed they were nonexistent. Jill was there through the whole process and I would recommend them to anybody.
Joan was simply the best. We learned so much working with her, always felt like we were completely taken care of and supported and trusted her implicitly. If anyone is considering buying a home in Albuquerque, I would strongly recommend you work with Joan. No one has more local knowledge, better taste, or an eye for a good investment. Joan is completely on top of it and will go to bat for her clients. Couldn't recommend her more highly.
We worked with her colleague Michael Ryan, and we were extremely satisfied with him. Michael found our dream house in two weeks. He was professional and was extremely helpful.
My husband and I worked with Joan Wagner to purchase a home in Albuquerque. Joan was a pleasure to work with, and her extensive knowledge of the area (including some of its history) was impressive. Joan was always on time for appointments and always returned our calls promptly. She was very helpful to us throughout the entire home-buying process and we would be happy to recommend her services to others.
Jill and Joan were responsive from the very first time I called them to the day of closing. Their knowledge of the entire transaction was fantastic, including the initial offer negotiations, inspections, corrections, and closing. I would trust Jill and Joan to conduct any real estate transaction for me in the future, and I feel I am lucky to have found them. They are the best real estate professionals I have dealt with. I would recommend them to anyone.
Joan helped me find the home after my relocation and a year and a half later, she helped sell my home in 3 weeks. Joan was there for each showing and followed up with each buyer's agent promptly. Joan posseses vast market knowledge, service oriented, and professional. Without hesitation, I would recommend Joan to anyone considering purchasing or selling a home.
Joan and Jill are true professionals with expertise in all areas of real estate. I had such a fun time with them searching for my new home. They provided a lot of worthwhile guidance and really helped me narrow down my search. I was astounded by the amount of personal details they retained about my likes and dislikes. Because of this, they did not waste my time looking at unsuitable properties.
Their resources are impressive. They arranged every service, set me up with my contractor, arranged decorating advice, and are still involved with my new house even after closing.
I can't imagine a better house buying experience.
I reached out to Joan from out of state, as I was planning to purchase a vacation home in the Albuquerque area and really needed some local expertise. I was not disappointed! Joan contacted me immediately, and was extremely accessible during the entire process. She provided listings of available properties for me to review from home, and when I arrived in New Mexico, made herself available to view as many properties as I wanted. Once I selected the property, she and her team swung into action and provided outstanding customer service. I've purchased several properties over the years and can say that this was the most smooth transaction ever! I continue to keep in touch with Joan, and know that she will be a great resource in the future.
Joan was tireless in helping me find a home when moving from out of state. She knew the entire metropolitan area, took the time to show me the city and its amenities, had realistic expectations and knowledge of what a home should sell at, and was a wonderful negotiator. Her exemplary service did not end with the closing of the home. She has been an unparalleled source for contractors and trades people. In addition, both Joan and her assistant Marene were responsive and solved any problems/answered all questions that we had throughout the process. If I ever move again, I would use Joan's professional services. Thank you!
In recent years we have dealt with real estate agents while selling and buying five homes and one building. Joan Wagner represented with us as buyers in the present transaction and is by far the best agent we have ever had. She provided advice and services that we needed during our exploratory visits and while we negotiated and completed the sale. Her knowledge of the local market was excellent. She showed us appropriate listings and conducted visits to those in which we were interested. She was effective in helping the other professionals in efficiently completing the transaction. After the closing and sale she has maintained contact and provided welcome advice on local service providers as we settled in. We recommend her highly.
I was new to New Mexico and wanted a house in Santa Fe that I believed would be good for me as well as a great investment for my future. These professionals found the perfect house for me (better than the one I had picked out) as well as a New Mexico lender that worked as quickly as I wanted. This was my 13th purchase so I've had a few realtors and lenders. I have to say this is my best experience by far. If you want the most bang for your buck on a house and for your future call these ladies. They are current on law and don’t miss a detail in the mounds of paperwork at closing saving me more money. I love my new home and plan to use them again on future purchases. Many Thanks, tempie juliano
Selling or buying a home is among the most important financial and emotional decisions a family makes because the result, positive or negative, can stay with you for a very long time, often determining future well being. Probably the most significant factor here is the choice of the realtor. Given this, I can't overstate our great satisfaction in having Jill Levin and Joan Wagner represent us when we were selling our house. Their knowledge of current market conditions and pricing, pro active approach, and general enthusiasm for their work relieved much of the stress connected with selling.
From the beginning of the selling process they coached us in everything we needed to do to ready our home for sale. They had all the contacts for home repairs and even scheduled the workers. Jill called everyday to keep us up to date on everything that was happening and to answer any questions we might have.
What was really amazing is that during a tour of houses in our neighborhood, Jill flagged down the passing car of someone looking for another address, invited her to see our house, and that person became the buyer. How can you beat that for being pro active? In a tough market Jill and Joan had our house sold after nineteen days on the market.
It would be an overstatement to say that Jill and Joan were the best Realtors in New Mexico, but fair to say that there are no better Realtors anywhere.
Joan did a fantastic job. She is professional, knowledgeable, patient, understanding, and very responsive. She took care of all of the details for me. This is the third house that we have worked with Joan on. This last one sold in 2 hours at above asking price.
Jill Levin and her partner Joan Wagner did a great job selling our property. We got good advice, and the house sold quickly in a challenging market. From the beginning of the process providing comparable home listings to help establish price, to prepping the home for inspection, to arranging all final details with the title company, we felt we were dealing with experienced professionals. Highly recommended!
I have purchased and sold homes (at least 7 transactions) in the last 20 some years with Joan's assistance. I would not purchase or sell a home without her assistance. Her professional qualifications are that valued by me and I have recommend her services to any and all acquaintances of mine who are selling or buying a home.
Jill assisted us in the purchase of our home, as we relocated across the country from Florida. After she spent a few days with us looking at available houses, we went back to Florida without finding our dream home. Jill continued to work extensively looking for that special home for us. The bottom line is: You really have to trust someone to allow them to pick a home for you "sight unseen", but Jill found the perfect house, in the perfect neighborhood, and at the perfect price! And she handled all of the inspections, etc. for us, and worked many hours making sure every aspect went smoothly. We will always look to Jill for any real estate transactions in the future, and will highly recommend her to our family and friends. Thanks Jill, we love you!
I dealt with Jill Levin, Joan's business partner. My condo loan was a tiny loan, but Jill treated it like a million-dollar transaction! I highly recommend this team! She took me through some difficult loan problems, always there to go forward or change gears. That's what you need in a realtor! Thank you!!
Joan is a real pro. We had to fire two real estate agents before we hired Joan. We have bought and sold many homes. The negotiating and transactional skills of the previous two agents were shockingly poor. Joan was a breath of fresh air. She gave us the service that we were accustomed to getting. This is a rare commodity in the Santa Fe market.
We were really impressed with Joan's performance overall. Not having a lot of experience with this kind of service, we we expecting a much, colder, "I just want to make as much money as I can" kind of approach. But Joan took the time to get to know us, understand what we did and did not need, and work with us toward that goal. She shared with us not only her knowledge of the different areas where she showed us houses, but also extremely valuable about the little details that in the end become so important: availability of difference services, what to expect from the neighbors, what kind of work the houses would need and how much it would cost, and so on.
Once we decided on a house, Joan skillfully guided us throughout the whole negotiation process and beyond. We still definitely think that we can count on her for any question that we have regarding living and Albuquerque, even though the deal is already closed. In sum, a wonderful agent and resource!
Joan was the ONLY realtor to respond to my on-line querries. She responded with detailed information about the properties I'd identified as potentially interesting; presented alternatives; asked probing questions regarding my requirements, interests, etc. Once we identified several properties, Joan escorted me to review them--exploring the features of each, as well as what my life might be like in each--Santa Fe, Corrales, and finally Placitas! As I settled on the 'right' one--in Placitas--Joan led me through all the processes and procedures--which was especially helpful as I moved from Brooklyn to NM!!! Her expertise, experience, professional approach, and warmth was a great introduction to NM!!! I continue to refer friends to Joan--she is the best!!!
Joan looked at our rental home and gave us a candid evaluation - it was a 50 year old home that needed some work. After we listed with her, she had the home cleaned professionally, had a realtor open house, had a public open house, and created a great description of this property for sale on her Website.
Everything she did was very professional - all calls and emails were promptly answered, no clitches once a buyer was found, etc.
Joan was A+ in all aspects of handling this listing and sale.
We would not hesitate to recommend Joan to a buyer or seller.
I primarily worked with Jill Levin, but Joan was involved as well. I can' t say enough good about Jill. She is professional, reliable, sensitive to her clients needs and personable. Jill worked tirelessly to find a home to suit my needs. She offered other homes outside my description but was never pushy or impatient. There was never a time Jill did not answer her phone. I would recommend her to anyone looking to find a new home! Joan was more involved in the nuts and bolts of the offer and contract. She provided expert advice and guidance on executing a complete and accurate offer and final contract.
Joan and her team were extraordinary assets in the sale of our
beloved and "distinctive" North Valley home - after interviewing several others,
Joan impressed us from our first meeting with the level of her preparation and
She came to us ready to work from that first meeting and helped us
navigate all stages of the appraisals, inspections, and sale with minimum
inconvenience and maximum confidence.
Joan and Jill's efforts resulted in the smoothest possible transaction
for both buyers and sellers and we couldn't be happier with the outcome.
We highly recommend Joan if you want to sell your house with a real professional!
We love Joan!! My husband contacted her company ( Prudential) to find us a second home in Santa Fe. Because we are out of state she has been sending us Virtual Tours of her listings as well as other homes she thinks will match. Even though we have not settled on one yet, she has made it easy to look from Portland. We appreciate her attitude toward us and we are anticipating finding just the right home in time for ski season.
Joan is helping me relocate to Albuquerque. I found here here on Zillow and She has been working with me to find the right neighborhood with the best school for my children. Joan's staff has also been very responsive to my questions about the process and about financing. She is a great consultant and We hope to find the perfect home soon.
I found Joan here on Zillow. I checked out her other web reviews and contacted her to find us our first home. Joan and her staff were very efficient and sent us several homes that met our needs. We flew into town and Joan took us around showing us several homes and several different neighborhoods. We settled on a home she found for us in the North West side of town. The close went smooth and we were very happy with the excellant level of service that Joan provided. We would be happy to recommend her to anyone.
I have the privilege of relocating to Albuquerque for work. I found Joan on the Web. I have used Prudential before and I was happy with their service. This time was no exception. Joan provided me with several listings and a wealth of information on the city. She helped me find a great home in the NE side. She also arranged help with my house in AZ.
I found her to be very attentive and I appreciated her prompt return of my correspondence.
